Today was the press day at Toronto International Autoshow 2012. Press days are always fun! It's a lot more quiet, you can touch and open and sit in all the cars, some of which, during the regular days, will be closed. And there's food. This time it was sponsored by our tax dollars, so it was a bit bitter. But not bad, anyways.
Cars. Yes. Toronto autoshow is becoming a very boring one — no more world premieres (or even country premieres). It's just a great place to check all the cars and save on driving from dealership to dealership.
So what's worthy of your attention?
I really liked Mercedes-Benz ML350, Audi A4, Dodge Ram.
The first one, cause it's big. It fits up to 7 people, and since I'm now on a lookout for a bigger car to replace Mazda 3 — mostly for corporate travel to Costco and just driving with a crowd. It is also very comfy and beautiful — both in and out. Mercedes really knows how to make luxury sink in into you.
The second one I liked because I like Audi's. But A4's beautiful use of bamboo and nice driver-focused interface. It's fast (211 hp), and agile (of course).
The third one — is one hell of a car. Big, fancy, leather-wrapped and big. Did I say big? Yeah. You can drive it nearly anywhere, takes 5 people and so much luggage that you can camp for a month!
